Ramla

© noheadimg

Ramla used to be the Arab capital of Palestine, before the Crusaders arrived and started dividing the country into smaller entities. The city was founded in 716 AD, but most of its glorious past has been destroyed and nowadays only a few worn Islamic monuments remain.

Despite of this, Ramla is a nice place. It has an interesting old Arab quarter with winding streets that contrasts sharply with the wide, tree-lined avenues in the new parts of town. On Wednesdays there is a bustling market in Ramla.

Ramla lies south off the main route between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv-Yafo and is bypassed by most travelers. There are several hotels and restaurants in town and there are frequent bus connections with both Tel Aviv-Yafo and Jerusalem. Ramla is 40 km northwest of Jerusalem.

Because of the current situation in Israel it is not recommended to travel to Ramla, or any other destination in Israel at this moment.
